ABOUT Red Telephone Books

Red Telephone Books
Brand new publisher of great fiction.  First novel 'The Prophecy' by Gill James out now.


Kaleem Malkendy is different – and on Terrestra, different is no way to be.

Everything about Kaleem marks him out from the rest.  The blond hair and dark skin, the humble cave where he lives and the fact that he doesn’t know his father. He’s used to unwelcome attention - but even so, he’d feel better if some strange old man didn’t keep following him around.

Then the man introduces himself and begins to explain the Babel Prophecy – and everything in Kaleem’s life changes forever.

"'The Prophecy' is a very good story. Gill James shows her talent for world-building and through this futuristic tale, touches on themes very relevant in today’s world, including the damage done by pollution and racial differences. It really left me thinking about where Planet Earth might end up in the future" - Jo Linsdell, Writers and Authors "We are taken on an exciting and eventful journey to the Planet Zandra, where we see Kaleem fulfil his role as the Peace Child. It is a fast paced, easy to read children’s story, with page-turning tension in all the right places" - Amanda Donovan,
